Free Astrology Reading: When Will My Tenant Finally Leave?

July 27, 2008 by  

My tenant is not vacating my flat even after nine months of notice. She is always coming up with excuses to stay put and is problematic to me and the neighbors. She is spreading false rumors about me to others. We came to know she and her husband are criminals. I am fed up with all the problems she is creating and told her to vacate as she was not paying the increased rent. Now her husband has passed away and she is asking for another 10 months to vacate. Will she vacate at least after that?

Dear M.,

I cast a horary horoscope for the time I understood your question. The chart is below:

Your tenant is represented by the 7th house* (see endnote) of “other people.” Mercury just entered a fixed sign, Leo, indicating that your tenant does not plan to go anywhere for as long as possible. The main difficulty is that you are not being firm and consistent in your demands upon her. Neither of your planets, Jupiter and the Moon, are in fixed signs – she is being much more stubborn and focused than you, which is why she is winning this little game.

I also note that the Moon is in Gemini, a double sign, indicating your vacillation on this issue. Double signs go back and forth; in a loud-voiced double sign, there is lots of talk here, but it is all one step forward and one step back. The fact that the Moon is ruled by Mercury tells us she has the upper hand here, because of your hesitation to put your foot down. What is less clear is why you are having difficulty doing so. Would your fear of the malicious rumors she is spreading have anything to do with it? The Moon is in her 12th house of secrets and hidden enemies.

The Moon has recently sextiled Mercury, likely your giving her permission to stay for another 10 months. The Moon’s next aspect is a sextile to the Sun, which afflicts Mercury by combustion. The Sun could be another person, perhaps a neighbor of hers, who is helpful to you in this matter, and it looks like you might be asking them for assistance. The Sun can also represent the government, and might show you starting the formal eviction process.

If you want to get her out sooner than 10 months, your best bet is in about four months from now, as Mercury will conjoin the Sun in about 4 degrees. That is, you should start the process now, but November-December seems like a good time for her to leave. However, that is only if you start taking decisive action to get her out. I do not see her leaving of her own accord otherwise, and the chart does not clearly show timing for that. Why should she? She has you where she wants you.

*Endnote: In traditional texts, tenants are assigned to the sixth house. However, remember that the sixth house rules slaves and those improving our household, so the old-fashioned kind of tenant is meant, where he works your land and generally does your bidding. In today’s context, that definition is not appropriate, and we would give most tenants the 7th house of business associates. If you do use the 6th house for tenants, feel free to share your experiences in the comments section.
